There are no rules when it comes to tying the knot with the love of your life. In the world of the, we’ve seen so many brides ditch traditional weddings for intimate ceremonies or better yet romantic elopements. If you’ve decided to host your nuptials at City Hall in Philadelphia or another beautiful location in the area be sure to document every moment of the joyous occasion with a Philly elopement photographer.

What Does It Mean to Elope?

Couples who choose to elope forgo a traditional wedding and opt for an intimate ceremony. Most couples decide to elope because of the overwhelming pressure and obligation that comes with planning a traditional wedding. Eloping allows you to experience a day solely focused on you and your significant other. In the past eight months, J&J Studios has worked with so many couples who have chosen to commemorate their love by choosing to elope. Every wedding is special and we look forward to taking unforgettable photos of your special day.  

Philly Elopement Photographer

We’ve found that every couple we have worked with had their reasons for choosing to forgo a traditional wedding ceremony. Last year, Elizabeth and Victor planned an extravagant wedding ceremony to commemorate their union with their family and friends. However, when COVID-19 hit they didn’t want to risk exposing their family and friends to the virus. So they decided to elope at Old Saint Joseph’s Church with just a few close loved ones.

As a Philly elopement photographer, we’ve also worked with couples like Aliyah + Darryl who desired an intimate wedding right in the backyard of their home. They had their backyard professionally decorated and hired a florist to put together stunning floral arrangements. Together with a small bridal party and just a few close friends and family Aliyah + Darryl exchanged their vows.
